I had no idea that existed. I always used DeadBeef as a Standalone app.
Is the repo version different from the standalone?

Completely opposite to your situation, I've never installed it as a stand alone app. What is your version?
Mine is 1.8.7

1.8.4

Then you might want to try my method of adding PPA to have the latest :wink:

I dunno... it works. Nothing is broken, no bugs... does that extra 0.0.3 make a difference? Is the latest in gtk3? (The standalone is purely in gtk2. As it should be :smiley: )

I must be the one of those who always jump to the latest and the greatest :grin: Be earnest with you, I do not know the difference. I just wanted the latest version.

I never forgave Audacious for skipping GTK3 for QT, there's plenty of QT players but few GTK3 players like the way Audacious is.

Welcome to DeadBeef :wink:
It has a limitless possibility for customization. I installed it mainly to play the lossless high definition audio but it can play almost any format you can think of.

But, it won't fit nicely with rest of the theme....

EDIT: By the way, what's **Super Boot Manager: **? Never heard of it.

Have you click the "settings" in Deadbeef?
There are tons of plug-in for custom look.

I guess this one:

It seems the design has a lot to be desired...

Seems to go well with the theme.

This is how my Deadbeef looks like at the moment.
I did very minimal customization since I have to reinstall everything from scratch when Zorin 16 Ultimate is out.

All those tabs and buttons... spend twenty minutes on the thing. I can change grub in 60 seconds with sudo nano /etc/default/grub. Just sayin'.
